“I was in a dark place – scattered and stressed. I felt completely overwhelmed with everything in life. This course changed all that for me. It taught me to enjoy life and live it moment by moment. “Thoughts are just thoughts”. It taught me to be kind to myself and to slow down. It has helped me in every aspect of my life. Thank you!.”
“For years I have looked for a course that would help me overcome stress, anxiety and anger. With MBSR I found it. MBSR has given me the tools and belief that I am in control of my own life again.”
“This course was one of the best things I have ever done in my life. I can’t explain how it worked but it has given me such peace and joy and zest for life. Kathryn, your serenity has just spilled over on all of us I feel.”
“Attending this course transformed me from someone who did not feel in control of their life, to now feeling completely in control of my thoughts, my feelings and my life. I have re discovered happiness. I have left sadness behind. I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the course and the benefits for my life have been immense.”
